Thomas Nashe Lenten Stuff

November 22, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

In 1597, the Elizabethan polemical prose writer and contemporary of Shakespeare, Thomas Nashe, fled to Great Yarmouth after a play he co-wrote with, playwright and poet Ben Jonson led to the closure of all London theatres. Anna Brass (British School at Rome’s Sainsbury Scholar in Painting and Sculpture 2018-19) was recently commissioned to produce a film representing this difficult period in Nashe’s life. Join Anna and members of the The Thomas Nashe Project team for a screening of the film and a discussion of the project, as they cast light on one of the major figures in the story of late Elizabethan literature.

In partnership with

Anna Brass, Professor Andrew Hadfield, Professor Jennifer Richards and Dr Kate De Rycker
